According to a report, Apple's 2017 iPhones have yet to enter mass production, and the OLED iPhone 8 release date is said to be delayed to November or December. These latest designs confirm that it will have an edge-to-edge display and near bezel-less design.

As usual, Foxconn will be handling the bulk of Apple's iPhone assembly, though it will mainly be handling the OLED iPhone.

The reason for the delay according to rumors is due to many issues.

The company believes that the "iPhone 8" could exceed the selling price of the "iPhone 7s" by up to $400.

The new iPhone 8 is also rumoured to start at a whopping $1200 which has definitely affected the consumers' decisions on whether or not they will be purchasing it. While some of the analysts have said that as the company has not decided yet on the placement of Touch ID in the phone, the shipment of iPhone 8 could be delayed. It will be long and house a 5.8-inch display with a "cutout at the top for the front facing camera and sensors", said the report.

If the new iPhone with an OLED screen launches in October, none of the sales will be counted in Apple's September quarter, which could be weaker than what Wall Street is expecting. A present report in Forbes has indicated that power secure will doubled as Touch ID sensor, however, we don't have an official affirmation on the same. And as previously rumored, Apple is swapping out the horizontal orientation of the rear camera setup for a vertical alignment, which is meant to help the iPhone 8 with augmented reality chores.

The rear camera has also been redesigned into a vertical shape.

The 4-inch iPhone SE has been an unqualified success for Apple, serving a base that wants close-to-flagship specs and features at a more agreeable price, without stretching out their pockets. The lack of a physical home button or even a fingerprint sensor at the back definitely points to that. A DigiTimes piece, which cites the Economic Daily News, was the first to report on Monday that production on Apple's newest iPhone could be postponed.
